Clothing is an integral part of self expression and identity. From the elderly, the LGBT community, and those that do not conform to gender, what they wear is the most instantaneous way to illustrate their self-perception. Likely when you meet someone, their clothing is one of the first things that one sees and judges. How does this affect the way that we portray ourselves? Is there a reluctance to show your truth? What societal pressures contribute to this? And how is this even more exacerbated for oppressed groups, such as women, trans people, and the LGBT community? Our project involves a community activity or intervention that helps these people show their true selves. We will organize and lead a group discussion about fashion, identity, and document the process by taking photographs of each persons unique look.
